About Sharon Mathiews

We have always enjoyed staying in the private bed and breakfast homes and wanted to offer our home town of Victoria this type of home for others to enjoy. It has been a dream of ours for many years to have this type of business to offer to others to relax and enjoy in. With this busy world today, it is good for everyone to just slow down and enjoy themselves and each other at some points in their lives. If its a romantic get away you need or just a peaceful place to relax, our B and B is the place for you!! We offer all the amenities of a fine hotel with the privacy of your own home away from home. If you live in Victoria or from out of town, it is perfect place to enjoy and relax for yourself or with each other!!! It is our goal to make that happen!!!

Sharon Mathiews purchased this house in 2012

Why Sharon Mathiews chose Victoria

We chose this home because we saw the potential for the happiness it could bring to others. We had a vision and it turned out exactly the way we thought it would. It was build in 1914 and is a completely refurbished home of a bygone era. It has a few dents and dings that makes you wonder of all the life that has been cherished in the home. Original hard wood floors hide all the secret happenings of the past underneath. You feel a sense of comfort and peace as soon as you enter the home. I knew it was special from the start!!! You will too!!! Its a home you won't want to leave!!!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home when we saw it was located on a peaceful corner in historic downtown Victoria. It had the relaxing inviting look of a old home with still so much to offer. It needed lots of work done to it and we knew we just could not let die the life of this home that still had so much to give!! We knew it would be the perfect place for a peaceful relaxing stay. We added a 7 foot fence for extra privacy even though it is not close to other homes. Beautiful old trees and vines add shade and a special touch to the home. It is now alive again and ready to give someone that special feeling of happiness they so need!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

A house has a life all of its own. It was conceived in the mind of a man or a woman and put on paper by an artisit. The artist shared the dream with the craftsman who pounded each nail and carressed each board. It was lived in by young and old and those just starting out. Its walls have heard laughter, arguements, the cries of babies and the sounds of broken hearts. A house remembers all the triumphs and tragedies, happy beginnings and bitter endings. It keeps all its secrets hidden under the floors or behind a door. Listen closely at night for that is the best time to hear the house tell of its life.

Fabulous 1st time winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had been planning on spending a month in Texas for the winter so when I found Serenity it seemed like it was meant to be. Sharon and her husband went above and beyond for our longer than normal stay by their guests. We were blown away by all of the special touches that they have applied to the house. (Husband loved all the little chocolates). We have friends who live in Houston, Austin and Fredricksburg and all were within 1 1/2 hour drive. Location was key to our choosing Serenity because you can be on the Gulf in less than hour. Victoria has many things to offer if you want to just spend a lazy day around town. Having an office was also a big plus. Again, thank you Sharon for making our trip so easy.

Just What We Needed!

  • 5 of 5

After a rough couple of weeks, my wife and I needed a break. Living a short distance away and having just a day or so to get away, we booked Serenity. After a movie and then dinner at the nearby Pump House, we enjoyed a quiet evening alone. What a difference a day can make! Sharon had everything just right. Everything about the property was well thought out. We will certainly be back. Thanks, Sharon!

Charming home; gracious host

  • 5 of 5

Three of us from the alto section of the Conspirare Symphonic Chorus booked this charming home rather than stay in one of the executive suite hotels where we usually stay during the Victoria Bach Festival. For four days we're in rehearsals that can be exhausting. It made a huge difference to have this home to return to at the end of each day. Sharon thought of everything and even had musical touches around the house to greet us when we arrived. A fun bike ride to the park was a special treat for me. Alicia's favorite thing was the king-sized tub in the master bath. Mary brought her air mattress and slept on the office floor very comfortably. We'll definitely be back! Thank you, Sharon.

Absolutely the best place to stay to recharge, reconnect or relax! The house is awesome, close to the park, and very well maintained. Hot tub is a major plus. Quiet historic neighbor hood with friendly people. Will be on our list for many trips. What a wonderful way to celebrate 30 years of marriage. All the extra touches made it perfect. Thank you Sharon for sharing this little gem.

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came down for a graduation. We really enjoyed this rental and everything was amazing. The house was a lovely older home that had been tastefully redone and updated. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again if we are ever in the area.
